Death Stranding is shaping up to be one of the weirdest and most intriguing games of recent memory, with all of the information we’ve gotten so far being truly unique. The game has been in development for a while, but it looks like development might finally be nearing the light at the end of the tunnel.
This was revealed in a Japanese newspaper called Asahi Shimburn, who spoke with developer Hideo Kojima recently. The report claims that the game has reached the polishing phase, with the developer now playing through the game to find things to improve. All gameplay elements have been finished and put together, with this being the case since Summer.
Kojima also shed more light on his infamous split with Konami, despite the fact that he’s still not allowed to speak openly about what happened. He said that he felt that everything was lost after the split, seeing as he spent the majority of his career with the company and his creation (Metal Gear) is no longer under his control. He apparently wanted to take some time off following the split, but several people close to him urged him to get right into another project as soon as possible.
Death Stranding still does not have a release date, but it is slated to be a PlayStation 4-exclusive.
